Manchester United are reported to have agreed a deal to sign striker Moussa Dembélé from Lyon.
It is claimed that all the details have been finalised and that the 23 year old will move to Old Trafford in the summer in a £61.8 million (€70 million) deal.
The news will come as a disappointment to Chelsea who had also been linked with the former Celtic forward.
United have been looking for a permanent replacement for Romelu Lukaku who was sold to Inter Milan last August, and now it looks like they have got their man in Dembélé who scored 51 goals in 91 appearances for Celtic and won the domestic treble with them twice.
He joined Lyon in 2018 and has since managed almost a goal very two games for them. However, the decision of the French authorities to cancel the rest of the Ligue 1 season means that Lyon will miss out on European football next season, and face having to sell some of their best players, including Dembélé.
